PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Oregon’s own Crater Lake was featured today on the “CBS Sunday Morning” segment “On The Trail.”

The lake is the deepest in the U.S. and was formed from a collapsed volcano, drawing many visitors every year.

CBS’ Conor Knighton traveled to Oregon drawn by The Old Man of the Lake, a 30-foot log that has been floating vertically around the body of water since it was discovered in 1896 by explorer Joseph Diller.
